THE PROFESSOR'S CHICKENS. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 20 February 1914

THE PROCESSOR'S CHICKENS. This may not be true, but it was new to our reporter, who overheard it whilst riding on a tram car, so it is likely there are others who havs heard it. " I heard a good one on Professor , of the University." he said. " What was it ? " queried the other. " Well, you kno*v he was married during the winter, and went to house keeping just outside the city. Last spring ho thought he would add a few hens to his stock, he already had a dog. He set a couple of hens, and in time had ffo large broods of chic hens. He "vas very proud of them, but in a week or so the chickens began to die. He called in a neigh bour, to look at the chickens, anil offer advice. They were certainly a pretty scaly lot of chickens that fho neighbour viewed. They were skin ny-looking, and apparently without ambition. " What did yer feed them on?? " asked the neighbour, after a brief survey. "Feed them,'!• responded the pro lessor, as though he didn't hear aright, " why I don't feed them any ...

Council Notes. In regard to Mr J. SI. O'Connor's request'to l>e relieved of his contract and deposit- refunded, the engineer stated that the application was not a oorroct one and that the contractor could not have been mislead in the matter. In reply to a request the engineer stated that the whole of Leishinan's frontage on the Stony Creek-Dollar road would have to fie deviated. The Secretary, in Bjjep.k'ing to the request of the Main Roads Board, in regard to the cost incurred on various main roads throughout tho shire, said it was a most difficult matter to cope with as a separate record had never been kept of such expenditure. Messrs Foley and Meikle waited on the council in regard to repairs on the j Slirboo road. The speakers referred principally to a piece of road that had bean left by a contractor. The Engineer stated that the con tractor had done the necessary work and left the piece of road that was considered fairly good. Tho President said the councillors grasped the s...

ADVICE ABOUT ROUP. [Newspaper Article] — Toora and Welshpool Ensign and South Gippsland Observer — 27 February 1914

ADVICE ABOUT ItOUP. Kemeniber, just one crack or knot hole near tho roosts may entail roup. It'» easier and much cheaper to pre vent roup than to cure it. This timely advice doesn't mean, as some extre mists seem to think it should, no ven tilation at all. Me believe in ventila tion, even in winter time. Hut give ventilation—that is, admit flesh nil— yet at the same time avoid draughts qb you would the evil one. If, however, it is too late to prevent roup, if the disease has already been contractcd and obtained a foothold, how to treat it becomes also a timely question. It is nonsense to say that it never pays to doctor sick fowls. Tioupy birds «ro frequently su!7criiig /rom a severe cold. Cure them and they aro as valuable as ever; but nevar breed from a bird while it is oITccted by the roup. Cure it first. If you can't cure it, kill it ; but try to cure it if1 .it. is worth the effort, and usually, after nil the time niic oxpense of gotting a bird up from the e£S to maturity, it r...

By continuous culling in tho manner described, tho wonderful egg-laying •trains are thus produced, unit Hocks ■bowing- an average yield of 20(1 eggs p«r heii per annum are not unfrcqunnt ly to be met with, which must result in a fcrv handsoihe profit ; but on tho other htuid, when such excessive pro duction 1ms been attained one cannot help thinking that the produce of such fowls must be wanting in strength and •tamina, and therefore not likely lo be of iufficient strength to perpetuate the fjreat productiveness of th...
